The RP Group

Our EDI committee

 Our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee

Purpose

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee guides and holds the organization accountable to integrate equity, diversity, anti-racism, and inclusion principles and practices into the organization’s cultural norms and all aspects of the work of the RP Group. The EDI Committee will stay current with best practices in equity, diversity and inclusion in order to provide continuous review and ensure the RP Group's practices and structure are in alignment with our values and code of ethics. The committee will make recommendations to the Board on how the RP Group can serve as a conduit for colleges and practitioners to use research and planning to elevate courageous dialogue about systemic racism and inform meaningful change.

Vision

The EDI committee envisions the RP Group as an organization where:

  • Equity, anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion are embedded and guide the research, planning, and professional development activities of the organization;

  • The RP Group is a change agent that empowers the IRPE community to lead and advocate for social justice within their respective institutions;

  • Research, planning, and professional development activities serve to raise minoritized student voices in the redesign of colleges’ policies, practices, programs, and processes and to dismantle systematic barriers and injustices; and

  • Research, planning, and professional development activities lead to the creation of educational spaces on campuses where all students learn and thrive regardless of their status, background, and demographics.
